                  • 1911 Pitcher Pat Paige

                    Paige appeared in just two major league games, both with the Naps in 1911, one as a complete-game starter on May 20th versus Washington and one as a relief pitcher on June 1st against Philadelphia. His ML record is a perfect 1-0, despite allowing twelve runs (eight earned) in sixteen innings. This image is from the Cleveland Plain Dealer and was posted on another forum by Cusick.
